An attenuator reduces the signal strength between an outside antenna and an in-building cell phone signal amplifier.
Attenuators are used in special situations where there’s a very strong outside signal that’s overwhelming the booster, but not the walls of the building. An attenuator, attached between the outside and antenna and the booster, dampens the signal before being redirected to the inside antennas.
Attenuators are typically used with WilsonPro 70 and Pro 70 Plus commercial building systems, and are not usually required for consumer and residential applications. They are also not needed with WilsonPro 4000‑series, WilsonPro 1000‑series, HiBoost, and Top Signal commercial systems, all of which feature automatic gain adjustment.
